Alternative Therapies for Varicose Veins

Submitted by on April 30, 2013 – 3:23 amNo Comment




Varicose veins are a painful problem, which are not easy to handle. Either these appear as smalls spider veins or at times large veins that are swollen and painful and could tire you out. Your legs feel heavy and weak and overall the whole feeling is very uncomfortable. Sometimes the blood vessels do not open wide enough to allow a smooth flow of blood and the veins get swollen resulting in varicose veins. Normally doctors prescribe blood thinners, medications, or compression hoses that are not only expensive but also bulky and tough to wear.

Alternative treatments however have better solutions that not only cure but also prevent the formation of varicose veins. Pine bark, grape seed, and quercetin are alternative therapies, which cure the conditions of varicose veins. Take two doses of 500 to 600 mgs of quercetin thrice a day. This prevents the varicose veins from getting blue and swollen.

Similarly, pine bark and grape seed also helps to strengthen the veins if you have 150 to 300 mgs everyday. Also, make sure you eat blueberries, cherries, and blackberries to get similar results.

Such alternative therapies normally help to heal and cure the varicose veins to a great deal. Take 300 mgs or 30 drops of horse chestnut twice a day and tone up your veins. This prevents varicose veins from occurring. If you want to reduce swelling then take 100 mgs of butcher’s broom for as long as you wish. It is required you add 10 percent ruscogenin in it. Gotu Kola and bilberry also protect your veins. If you take 80 mgs of bilberry thrice a day and 60 to 120 mgs of gotu kola every day then it would help the veins a great deal. Only you have to ensure that bilberry has 25 percent anthocyanoside and there is at least 50 mg of triterpenic acids in gotu kola.

With so many varieties of alternative therapies available in the market, it is wiser to adhere to such treatments too.
